EU Presidency priorities unveiled

Yesterday, Poland presnted its programme for the EU Presidency in the second half of this year. It focuses on three main priorities: a) European integration as the source of growth (dealing with EU Budget and Single Market, b) Secure Europe (dealing with food, energy, and defence, and c) Europe benefiting from openness (Southern and Eastern Neighbourhood, Western Balkans, Russia and the Doha Round of trade talks). 

You will find more here. The document adopted by the Council of Ministers is the final version of the Polish Presidency programme. However, further changes are still possible: these will be introduced conditional on the situation of the EU, the achievements of the Hungarian Presidency and conclusions of the European Council in June.
